Unity is a game development platform that allows you to create high quality 2D and 3D games, and deploy them across mobile, desktop, VR/AR, gaming consoles or even the web.

In this episode we’re joined by Cloud Developer Advocate Brian Peek (@BrianPeek), who gives us some insight on building games with Unity. He shows how .NET developers can use their skills with Unity and also leverage cloud services in the backend.

Siraj Raval has a video explaining the Unity and it’s new AI tool.

Creating 3D AI in a simulated world is actually pretty easy using Unity. It’s a powerful tool and I’ll go over its new ML Agents toolkit, that allows researchers and developers to build/train ML models in a 3D simulation. It’s pretty fun watching it in a 3D world, lets break down the code and concepts.

For the next 10 weeks Siraj Raval  is going to go from the basics to the state of the art of reinforcement learning (RL), a popular subfield of machine learning using video game environments as our testbed.

RL is a huge reason DeepMind and OpenAI have been so successful thus far in creating world changing AI bots.
